    Pros

    Many opportunities for cross business collaboration. Continued growth keeps people positive about their job security. Many people have been with the company for over 20 years, which helps new hires understand the culture and business in a deeper way.

    Cons

    Sometimes in a big company employees can feel small, but being in a smaller BU allows you to have a voice and really make an impact on the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going!

    Pros

    Was interesting work with a company that did not have a lot of politics or BS. Just trying to get the job done.

    Cons

    Not a lot of growth and thus not a lot of opportunity. Looking at the news, they have gotten back on a path that looks more steady.
